Irish presenter Laura Whitmore has announced that she will be leaving MTV after seven years. The blonde haired beauty made the confirmation via Instagram last weekend (February 15), along with a photograph of her on her first job at a red carpet event back in 2008. Her Instagram message read, “After 7 years, I have decided it’s time to hang up my MTV hat. It was my very first telly job and I can’t thank MTV enough for taking the chance on me. However due to some upcoming projects I can no longer commit. I will however still very much be on the channel hosting the ‘MTV asks” artists specials, MTV awards for International, festivals as well as some new projects currently in development. There are some other exciting projects over the next 9 months I will be telling you about when I can. In the mean time, next week will be my last news records. It’s been a blast! (This pic was taken the first day of my job in 2008). Lx”.
